I want to ask if there is any connection with Subcortical cyst and hearing loss as cysts are present in temporal lobe ..also there is any way these abnormalities can be reversed ?
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 5 months ago.

Yes, there absolutely could be a connection

cysts can press on nerves just like tumors even though they are benign

If they are the cause, it could be reversed by removing the cyst
